I tried changing redirect.lic , ansyslmd.lic with all the hostname combinations and its not working.


When I tried Telnet, it is giving me blank screen (I had to specify 1055 1056 2325 in Firewall). But when I run a simulation while online. I am still getting the error that Unable to locate or start COM engine.


What I can do now. I think the installation is local. I got this license from my sponsors so I have no idea how it is supposed to work.

The license has my laptop as hostname, so I think it is a local license.

But any help is really appreciated. Its really frustrating. 


Is there any option I can use laptop as a server and run Ansys on a different PC and direct to the laptop(server) for license.
